What Makes Bing Crosby’s “White Christmas” So Great?
What Makes The Kojo Show Theme Song So Great?
Composer, conductor and commentator Robert Kapilow breaks down the musical elements and ideas behind the Kojo Show theme song, spotlighting what makes it a great piece. Kapilow credits composer Igor Stravinsky with saying that all composition comes down to a balance between unity and variety. “Too much repetition leads to boredom, but too much variety leads to chaos. And this theme is a perfect balance of unity and variety,” Kapilow added. All great art at some point undermines the very world it has created, and Kapilow says the theme accomplishes this task.
